The Cleveland Indians are now a handful of games into the season and are sitting at a lackluster 3-5. The season started off fantastic with two solid outings from Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez but has fizzled since. Some might agree that the fault lies squarely on the shoulders of the starting pitching, while others might point to scheduling or injuries.
Whatever the case may be, the Indians have done a terrible job of showcasing the talent they hoped they would have to win the AL Central this year. However, we must remember that we are a mere eight games into a 162-game season. The alarms should not be sounding in your household yet, but I would check the batteries just in case.
Baseball is a volatile sport, and each team always has a chance for that improbable run. If the Cleveland Indians are planning on doing it this year, they'll have some serious barriers standing in their way.
